A quirky article: are Jays deceived by magic tricks?

I thought this was interesting, and it’s also quite funny watching a proper magician performing magic tricks to a tame Jay: https://theconversation.com/we-performed-magic-tricks-on-birds-to-see-how-they-perceive-the-world-161772

Imagine even thinking of performing a magic trick to an animal… but it turns out that you can fool some of the jays some of the time. I’m going to see the park jays in a different light from now on.

Fascinating.
Thanks for sharing.
